Change driver according to original 1.9.1 moxa driver.

Where did these changes come from? The Moxa website, perhaps?

Do we know what they do? Have you been able to test it?

Ok. Bernard did not test it:
In fact, due to distro version differences between mine and the one
installed on my friends linuxbox (I was running Mandriva 2006 with 2.6
kernel and he had a Knoppix system with 2.4 kernel), I did not had the
opportunity to check if the new version sent by Moxa support worked
before he disappeared.
But I dont see any reason it would not. Moxa guys have all the hardware
in their development departement to check their product drivers.

I just verified that 1.9.1 driver source could be compiled under kernel
2.6. and so did it.

So, what do you expect me to do, Andrew? Add just pci_ids + its config with no int->ulong conversion + writing ~UART_IER_THRI to the port?
